It is our pleasure to announce that thanks to the extended Carlmont community of parents, alumni, community members, matching gift companies and local businesses, last fiscal year CAF raised $682,826! This record amount supports programs this year that help your student be ready in the classroom and ready for life.
Programs CAF supports include:
- Reducing Class Sizes in Core Classes: with last year’s donations, CAF funded 17 additional class periods for this school year, enabling reduced class sizes in core academic subjects like English and social studies
- Funding Creative and Enrichment Programs: support for leadership, music, “Race, Immigration and Ethnicity in the US” class, “Intro to Business” class, journalism and digital arts = well-rounded Carlmont students
- Investing in Teachers: more supplies = more hands-on student experiences; more cross-department collaboration = better-informed teachers
- Preparing Students for College and Career: enhanced tutoring, more college-prep classes= better prepared Carlmont graduates; strengthened college counseling program = a calmer college application process
